That isnt snow from my point of view here in SE Wisconsin, thats a heavy frost.

I agree with Dan... way too nice a car to drive in that kind of weather.

I would call that SERIOUSLY hammered, Ian!! We have only had maybe 6 inches total so far this year, with about 3 inches of salt spread on the roads.

That front fender dog leg doesnt look too too hard to fix... cut it out, wire weld in a sheet metal patch, some bondo to smooth it out, and matching paint from a rattle can and it will be good as new.

^LOL. More like as good as a shady used car. Do it the right way, please don't paint your nice car with rattle can paint, it doesn't last, and it will end up being a waste of your time, as well as hurtful to the car. Find another rust-free fender(s), they are not hard to find, take it to a bodyshop and have it stripped down, primed, and re-painted in a 2K Urethane or Enamel paint, doesn't have to be an expensive brand, most shops can do an exact color match to your old faded paint color, if you don't wanna re-paint the entire car. With that fender being as rusty as it is, I can only imagine what other horrors of corrosion lurk on that car, so I would go over the entire thing with a fine tooth comb before having the entire car painted. There could be much more needing replacement than just that fender. With everything done right though, you'll be much happier with you car in the end. No one likes a hack/patch-job car but the oblivious owner. Don't be that guy. Smile

I have another fender but it's black. I've been kinda holding off till it gets a little warmer before I do anything. A good friend of mine does some resto work and also had a paint setup at his house. Basically if I buy the supplies and do as much work as possible hell basically charge me nothing. So I wanna repaint the entire car in a nutshell.
